My next door neighbour.
She was about 15 years older than myself at the time, and was married to a lovely man.I went to Church with them, and she was a very polite lady, and had amazing manners.I have always thanked her for her example in my thoughts, but that was in the 60's. She would take me out and was very kind....Thank You Barbara :) Where ever you are today.
For most of my life growing up I really didn't have a role model. However, in my late teens a church brother that was about 8 years my senior became my role model. He made being good and doing the right thing look cool. Now that I'm a teacher and a parent I can see how my students see me as the cool teacher that they are willing interact with. I can see how my role model has unknowingly influenced my life.
Love that answer. I had wonderful teachers, I was so lucky. My daughter did too and now she is a teacher herself. She is considered very cool and is very loved. Some of the Christmas cards she gets really choke me up. Yay for all you teachers!!!! x x x x
I'm not sure I had a role model actually. I had no idea what kind of life I wanted, I'm still a bit hazy on that at forty to be honest! I idolised my aunt, who was very glamorous and seemed exotic to me but I had no thoughts about ever being anything like her when I was grown up.
Don't laugh. It was the Lone Ranger. TV was brand new when I was little and he had a white horse and always helped people . . . and I was a tomboy . . . but I have always had white horses. Big imprint right there, I think. Ah, Clayton Moore, how I loved you.
